The Wall Street Technology Association, which provides a forum for financial industry technology professionals, vendors, service providers, and consultants learn from one another, has introduced its board of directors for the new year.

Having been around since 1967, the group is one of the oldest organizations catering to IT professionals, so we figure it's a good thing to give those volunteering as leaders to get a bit of attention. Here's the board:

*President : James Kostulias, Chief Information Officer, TD Ameritrade

*Treasurer: Ronald F. Ries, CPA, Partner, WeiserMazars LLP 

*Secretary: Chris Randazzo, CIO and Managing Director of Wealth Management and Investment Management Technology, Morgan Stanley

The association kicks off its 2016 educational series of events later this month with a panel discussion on Transforming WANs with Virtualization on Jan. 21 in New York City. More info here on the events line-up.
